Currently Latin much is all the rage on the airwaves and its influence has made its way into fashion. I’m very excited by all the vibrant colours, patterns and shapes that will be gracing the shop floors. for 2018. Best of all finally the high street is extending the colour palette for boys and men; bold salmons, greens, pinks and neon. When I attended George’s press event recently, I was in awe of their display tropical display and gorgeous clothes. On my Facebook and Instagram you will find photos of the entire collection but for the purpose of this feature I will focus on ladies and children’s wear. Whether you are on vacation or staycation in George SS18 you will be serving up Club Tropicana vibes.
Are Llamas the new unicorn? Children’s Wear trend
George SS18 children’s wear is all about vibrant colours, patterns and textures catering to a wide range of tastes. The first piece that caught my eyes was the mermaid swim bag. As a family we’ve been spending more time at the pool, so I luv fun pool side (beach) pieces. The puffa fish swimsuit bodysuit was super cute!! Complete with lil flappy fins for boys and the girls there’s a fish motif swimsuit. Boy’s casuals rock, with Hollywood All over print and palm shirts, ombre slogan and nautical stripe tees. Girl’s casuals feature cheerleader chic, senorita sway and pretty princess. They can expect to find intricate pastels and bold colours, embroidery, pinafore dresses, llama motif tees with multi textures. A little birdie told me Llamas are the new unicorn. I don’t know about that but I do luv Llama and the ‘No problema’, vibe. Baby products include soft monochrome, animal and tropical dresses for girls and nautical inspired baby-grows and sleep bags with astronomy motif for boys.
The Mexicana Trend in Ladies Wear
Ladies wear is exquisite and feminine; any piece would be wonderful addition to the wardrobe for SS18. George took inspiration from the colours and floral patterns of the season, then, added some hot sauces. RESULT! A collection that is muy caliente! Stunning Mexicana and floral print swimsuits with matching kaftan will take you from poolside to bar side. Tassels reign over all accessories from statement clutch bags with Mexicana beading with tassels to sling backs shoes with fringe. What is Spring/Summer without a maxi dress? Well choose form yellow anglaise, Mexicana print or dreamy Georgette florals. Feel safer in black? Then, maybe a uber sexy gingham cold shoulder dress or mono chrome culottes will be your style.
Whatever you taste, all in the family George SS18 has got you.
